    Official Acronym Thread??

    This site is almost as bad as my workplace when it comes to acronyms.

    Take the DVE down to the QMM lab and have them run FEA tests on the housing, then see if we have any PER's or anything in the CRIB.

    Yeah, I thought this would be a good idea for people like me to know what is going on (newbies to the site, or people who just generally don't get the whole acronym thing).

    I'll start with the most common one, please add to this:

    You're suppose to say what they mean. Like wtf is "Fyyff"? Sounds like a sarcastic sound to me, rather than an acronym?

    (un?)thankfully, I know the others...

    I had to google "Meh" a while back. Kind of funny now.

    I also had to google "NNC" (I thought it must have something to do with N. Carolina) when I first came aboard and behold...it has Wiki definition!
